Hundreds of thousands of Americans watched when the sun vanished behind the moon. It was the first full-blown solar eclipse to sweep the US from coast to coast in nearly a century.

There's a lot to read in the data from solar eclipses. Some of it reads like clockwork. Other bits might seem odd. But total solar eclipses, like the one on August 21, are the raw rhythm of nature up close.
A total solar eclipse has completed its path from coast-to-coast across the United States. Millions of people observed the rare celestial event.
